Hope you enjoy the following quotes written by Ivan Illich:
"School divides life into two segments, which are increasingly of comparable
length. As much as anything else, schooling implies custodial care for
persons who are declared undesirable elsewhere by the simple fact that
a school has been built to serve them."
"The compulsion to do good is an innate American trait. Only North Americans
seem to believe that they always should, may, and actually can choose somebody
with whom to share their blessings. Ultimately this attitude leads to bombing
people into the acceptance of gifts."
"The public school has become the established church of secular society."
"There is no greater distance than that between a man in prayer and
"We must rediscover the distinction between hope and expectation."
"At the moment of death I hope to be surprised."
"Effective health care depends on self-care; this fact is currently
heralded as if it were a discovery."
"Healthy people are those who live in healthy homes on a healthy diet;
in an environment equally fit for birth, growth work,healing, and dying...
Healthy people need no bureaucratic interference to mate, give birth, share
the human condition and die."
"Leadership does not depend on being right."
"Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals."
